Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Neymar – The Brazilian has been excellent as usual for both club and country. He has 4 goals and 3 assists in his last 4 games, including 2 goals and 1 assist in the Copa America. Neymar also grabbed the second goal in their last match against Peru.

Richarlison – Richarlison has received a confidence boost with a goal and assist against Peru. He has been very good for Everton and it is time for him to shine for Brazil. Playing alongside the likes of Neymar and Gabriel Jesus, his good form is just set to continue.

Differential Pick

Duvan Zapata – The Atalanta forward has not gotten off the mark in Copa America yet but it won’t be long before he does. He has 15 goals and 9 assists in 29 starts in Serie A last season. Zapata also created 51 chances, attempted 39 shots on target and 34 successful dribbles.

BRA vs COL Dream 11 Teams

Likely Winner:

Brazil will be the favourites for the BRA vs COL Today Match Prediction. Colombia is difficult opponents but it remains to be seen how they respond to a deflating loss to Peru. Brazil has been on a devastating run and is the favourites to win this Copa America title. It will take a huge performance from Colombia to cause an upset to them. They have also played more games than the home side which has granted their rivals more time to rest and recuperate for games. While Colombia is a very side, capable of surprises, it is unlikely that they will stop Brazil’s winning streak.
